    Why are we playing NKU on the road?
    Is that a 2 for 1 for us?
    Just curious, because that was the type of game we would play always at home.

    I don’t like the FCS games. They add little. They are not exciting home games and if you lose (as we have), it looks awful. Plus, attendance is likely weak for FCS team (even early in the year).

    Schedule full FBS schedule and actually win the games. We don’t need Alabama, Clemson, OSU, etc. We need something like:
    Big10 game or ACC/SEC (if schedule weaker Big10 team as below)
    UC,
    Mountain West/AAC/weaker Big10 team,
    and then CUSA/Sunbelt game.

    Winning record with this gets you bowl game.
    Awesome record with this gets you ranked and really good bowl games.


    You can’t make ends meet for Miami football under your formula. According to DS it no longer makes economic sense for us to go to places like UNC, Duke, Wake Forest, Kansas, or Vanderbilt. There is no payday at all in playing another G5 school.



    1 for 1 or 2 for 1 games are needed for weaker teams like UNC, Duke, Kansas, Vandy, ...
    Toledo schedules well for home games. We need to mimic that.
    Is the budget that bad?

    I think we can afford this....

    “The pact includes no pay increase. His annual salary will remain at $300,000.”

    He is 65. We can more than double this if he wants to coach again and I think the show cause is up this year. He could be the next Solich of the MAC.
    Some controversy - yes, but the media coverage and press at Miami would be well worth it.
    Recruiting would take off and he could get coaches all over with his contacts.
